I utilize a unique combination of techniques to assist each individual need, restoring body, mind, and spirit wholeness.
I volunteer at Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm here in Lexington, Kentucky providing hand and chair massage for our senior population. I enjoy doing this because I form relationships with residents and their families. I gain new perspective on life, helps strengthen my skills, enhances residents' lives, and I enjoy putting big smiles on the residence faces.
Music might be played. If you find music distracting, tell your massage therapist. The same goes for talking during your session. Your massage therapists should check on pressure and comfort throughout your appointment. If you're uncomfortable at any time, tell your massage therapist. The massage table is padded, and may have extra attachments or cushions, such as a face cradle, which allows you to lie facedown without turning your head or neck.
Before your massage, you'll be asked to remove clothing to your level of comfort. The therapist will leave the room while you undress. Take off only as much as you are comfortable removing. Lie on the massage table, underneath the provided sheet or towel, which will cover your body except for the part being massaged. Chair massages, which often are offered in public spaces and workplaces, are an exception. A specially-designed massage chair lets you lean forward and supports the front of the body. You remain clothed and no oil or lotion is used. Seated massages typically last from 10 to 30 minutes.
Massage therapists often use oil or lotion. If you're allergic to oils or lotions, tell your massage therapist beforehand. If you're receiving hot stone massage, make sure you're comfortable with the temperature of the stones. Depending on your needs, the massage therapist will massage either the full body only specific areas that need attention, such as especially tight muscles.
Remember to breathe normally.
Table massage usually lasts between 30 and 90 minutes. After your massage, the massage therapist will allow you to slowly get up and get dressed in privacy. Usually your massage therapist will offer you water after you're dressed.
We understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone's life. In our desire to be effective and fair to all clients, the following policies are honored:24-Hour Advance Notice is required when canceling an appointment.
This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. Failure to supply a notice within 24 hours will result in 50% of the treatment cost becoming due.
. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo a scheduled appointment for whatever reason will be considered a "No Show", be charged for the missed appointment, and he/or she will not be permitted to reschedule.
If you arrive late, your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the full session cost. Out of respect and consideration for your therapist and other clients, please plan accordingly and be on time.
